This has the potential of being a very interesting theme.

That sandwich looks painful - once eaten

The color and texture of those first two shots is just wonderful, as is the balance between flash and natural lighting in the last... Nice work!

What can you tell us about these images... Where, When, Why?

I attended the wedding of a friends son, held in Delhi, India recently. The first 2 photos are from the reception prior to the actual ceremony. Then there was the ceremony and then a dinner after that with the usual dancing and celebrating. The "westerners" who were invited were asked to dress in traditional ethnic attire. So here I am (gone native) with a friend from Columbia, S.A. The 3rd photo is from a celebratory party 2 days after the wedding (the chef was making mini pizzas).

Quite a 'jump in' ivoire!
Great work. And a though act to follow.

You would make a wonderful maharaja by the way!
Perhaps in a previous/next life?

Bart... normally i don't take food pics but the opportunity came and here they are. Luck of the draw I guess. The wedding was fun and the 25 days prior to it were spent on the beach in Goa. As for the next life, hope i'm here on a one way ticket

Oh, you handsome devil you! You look pretty dashing wearing that traditional ethnic attire, as does your young lady friend.
Judging from the pic's I'd say you folks had a pretty good time, it must have been quite the wedding.

Well, "Glorious" food is a bit of a relative thing.
Being kind of on permanent diet, what I consider glorious is rather simple

Hence the simplicity of my subject.
Plus this kind of photography is hardly my "thing".

Enough of the excuses


All with Panasonic FX500.








My last interpretation definitely has an alien twist, I think. Klingon?

Nice pics Bart... My diet is 70% (minimum) fruit so this looks very good to me. However, I like the effect of the last image

Thanks, ivoire!

I processed the image with Colour Efex Pro4.
There are some remarkable possibilities in that program. At least form me since I don't have Photoshop.
